I’ve got a M55 22RF but never see anything about it on the Forum. Is it the forgotten ( purposely ) 22RF ?

Bill,

Yes. I do not know a single Winchester collector who collects them.

My first rifle….lt tore up my fingers pulling the bolt back and burned my hand dropping the spent cartridge in my palm !

I’ve wondered how they let that design out !Yell

FYI:  If any WACA members are interested in my M55 22, it’s a solid 90% plus.

PM me or email to:

blueliner15@yahoo.com

I’ll put it in Swap Meet later, but since I was inquiring about it, thought I’d throw that out.

It is certainly an odd duck.  I have a couple in my collection but one of the reasons that no one really “collects” them is that there were no variations in the model at all during its brief production life.  The only reason I have two examples is that some of them have cherry wood stocks and some are walnut.   That is the end of the minor variations.  From a collector standpoint “no variations” means a boring collection.

They are popular up here in Canada but hard to find. I just sold 2 of these and have 3 people waiting for me to find another one for them. Neat little gun.

Brian,

I’ll be in Reno in November if that helps .

I’ve heard from a few folks about the 55, but I agree with JWA, one is a lonely number for a model collection !
